Trumpeter Swan

Another image from Florida. Ray and I went to Lake Eola early one morning to shoot the beautiful birds that inhabit this small lake in the center of metropolitan Orlando. We had lots of opportunities to shoot Ibis, Cormorants, and several species of Swans. I should have packed the 180mm Nikkor but brought the 105mm instead, expecting to shoot only people on this trip. The 105mm f/2 is great portrait lens and it worked well for this shot.

Camera: Nikon D3
Lens: NIkkor 105mm f/2
Exposure: ISO 200, 1/640 @ f/2.8
Lighting: Daylight
Location: Orlando, Florida
Processing: Lightroom 3

The bokeh is very interesting. How do you choose the DC setting?
